$1,800 power cord costs about $1,795 too much

Well, if you've got any sense in your head whatsoever you don't need little old me to tell you that there's absolutely nothing that could make a simple power cord worth $1,800. But let's face it: the Furutech Powerflux power cord clearly isn't aimed at people with sense in their head. It's aimed at people so rich that they've given up thinking, allowing their almost limitless supply of money to go to any snake oil salesman with a good enough pitch. And what a pitch!

Powerflux conductors are 68-strand α (Alpha) OCC twisted around μ–conductor strands with a special-grade PE insulation or dielectric. (Alpha conductors are fine OCC wire treated with Furutech’s Alpha Cryogenic and Demagnetizing process.) The dielectric is surrounded by an inner sheath of RoHS-compliant PVC incorporating carbon powder that enhances damping, and that in turn is covered by a full α (Alpha) conductor wire braid shield. Another flexible PVC outer sheath and a Nylon braid jacket finish the job.
And it keeps going from there! Here's a tip: none of this crap means anything, and it's still just a power cord. Go donate some money to charity or something, you rich moron.
